    1. Μια έξυπνη και σύντομη ιστορία, ένα διήγημα επάνω στην ματαιότητα της ανθρώπινης ύπαρξης, δοσμένη με εξαιρετικές δόσεις χιούμορ και τρυφερότητας. Πριν 11 χρόνια γυρίστηκε μάλιστα ως ταινία και έναν από τους κεντρικούς ήρωες, τον Kneller, τον υποδύεται ο Tom Waits (Wristcutters: A Love Story, 2006) [...]


    2. Sono arrivata a questo libro di Etgar Keret grazie ad un festival estivo in cui era stato invitato, per la proiezione di un film tratto da un suo racconto " Il centro vacanze di Kneller" ---> Wristcutters, piccolo film indipendente che mi ha piacevolmente sorpreso notevole la colonna sonora - Tom Waits, Joy Division, Gogol Bordello- i Gogol Bordello !-m.youtube/watch?v=K6nPXjo#e bel cast (bravo Tom Waits anche attore) Mi è piaciuto molto il taglio fresco,ironico e poetico della storia ( c'è [...]


    3. Originally posted here.Everybody hates him, except Uzi. I think there's this thing that after you off yourself, with the way it hurts and everything – and it hurts like hell – the last thing you give a shit about is somebody with nothing on his mind except singing about how unhappy he is. I mean if you gave a flyin' fuck about stuff like that you'd still be alive, with a depressing poster of Nick Cave over your bed, instead of winding up here.Etgar Keret's Kneller's Happy Campers manages to [...]


    4. This is such a short novella that it reads almost like a script to the movie Wristcutters: A Love Story. There's a lot very similar, which makes the movie a true adaptation. At the same time, the movie offers a bit of extra details that aren't included in the novel. Hollywood classically tacked on a happy ending to the movie while the book's ending is truer to the point of the book: the pointlessness of Mordy's hell and how the things you want only happen after they are no longer important.


    5. This is the third of Keret's books that I've read, and every time I start one, I don't know know how the chaos of the first pages will ever resolve by the end of his characteristically short tales. But every time I turn the last page, they seem to make it, scraping in under some chain-link gate, closing on a strip mall comic book storefront as the caffeinated characters dance like extinguishing florescent bulbs inside. I enjoy every word he writes. After I read a sentence, it seems like it shoul [...]


    6. It’s very hard to put into words this incredibly odd story. It’s set in a world that’s just like ours, but is slightly worse and full of people who have commited suicide. People walk around with holes in their heads, gruesome scars along their neck and arms, and blue faces; all according to how they did it. It’s a very unique tale about Mordy, a man who killed himself after the breakup between him and his girlfriend Desiree. When he discovers that Desiree, too, has commited suicide and n [...]


    7. zimlicious/The blurb of the book really does explain what it is: "a strange, dark but funny tale." A love story, in essence, but there's a lot more than that in it. Mordy, after killing himself, find himself in the afterlife world, which really is a lot like ours. The difference is that people walk around baring the wounds of how they killed themselves, bullet holes in their bodies and such. At the bar he discovers, Mordy meets Uzi and they become friends. And then, when Mordy finds out the love [...]


    8. No tenía el gusto de haber leído a Keret. Cuando esta editorial, Sexto Piso, publicó Extrañando a Kissinger recuerdo que causó cierto revuelo en la crítica nacional. Por una u otra razón no llegué a leerle hasta ahora con esta Pizzaría Kamikaze. Desde los títulos de los relatos te atrapa. Abre con La historia del conductor de autobús que quería ser Dios, en el cual no hace falta agregar absolutamente nada para explicar de qué va. El punto de escisión es el estilo fluido y campechan [...]


    9. Sólo tengo una palabra para describir esta colección de relatos: SOBREVALORADA.No es culpa de Keret si no de todos los hipsters que clasifican como "obra maestra" a todo lo que diga cosas relacionadas con el infierno, las drogas, algunas relaciones de pareja que trascienden la vida y la muerte y personajes con alguna tara o megalomanía.Sin embargo, en mi decepción sí encontré una obra maestra el relato "Un coctel del infierno" es obra de una inventiva, maestría narrativa y frescura que le [...]


    10. August 2017: I also read the French translation. What else could I find? :) I am now also in possession of the original Hebrew, but cannot say I could understand it. :D**LEI wanted to read the graphic novel based on this book by Keret, but when I went to the library I realized I had ordered the German translation and I read it. I also enjoyed it!I was a little confused by the changing of the names and now I am looking forward to the sunny day when I am going to be able to read this book in Hebre [...]


    11. Beautiful. I've wanted to read this book for years, ever since I saw the film it inspired: 'Wristcutters: A Love Story', which is one of my absolute favorites. There's definitely some key differences between the book and the film; I liked several elements of the film better. What I'm really torn on is the ending; at first I was really mad that it differed from the film's beautiful conclusion, but after letting it digest for a while, I actually think it's kind of perfect.


    12. At only 86 pages, I’m not sure what to call this book – a short novella? A long short story. Either way, it doesn’t matter. I call it good reading -- an extremely enjoyable and memorable read from beginning to end.Basically, it’s a dark and kind of magical picaresque story in which we follow roommates Mordy (our hero and narrator) and his rambunctious German friend Uzi on their journey through an unnamed alternate “unreality” populated entirely by suicide victims on a seemingly hopel [...]


    13. A couple of years ago after I broke up with my girlfriend of 3 years I watched the movie Wristcutters. And I absolutely loved the vibe it captures because it displays the familiar feeling of stasis and absurdity present in my own world. As a matter of fact, after we broke up, I started working at pizza place and taking long walks around my lower middle class suburban town. On these walks you'd see tons of people driving past in their cars, but on the sidewalks and parks nary a soul under the age [...]


    14. It's extremely difficult to make suicide heartwarming, but Keret manages it. For anyone who enjoyed 'Wristcutters', rest assured that the story that inspired the film is just as enjoyable. Where the film gives more of an overview of the story, 'Kneller's Happy Campers' is straight from Mordy's point of view. (Oh, and all the names are different to the film.) I am reluctant to give much away, as it is very short. I will say that I loved the Chapter titles. They foreshadow what will happen, but do [...]


    15. Etgar Keret impresses with a novella that shows his continuing growth as a writer and a imaginative force. The book slips in a few cliches now and again and even with suspension of disbelief there are a few odd bits and ends that don't quite add up, but these are like specks here and there in what is otherwise an intriguing and genuinely moving story.Keret deals with a difficult (to put it as lightly as possible) subject, suicide, in a casual, almost nonchalant way but somehow still manages to b [...]


    16. Durante meses (si no es que años) este libro estuvo esperando a que lo tomara, y hasta cierto punto me arrepiento de no haberle dado una oportunidad antes.No existe una manera precisa y certera para delinear el mundo de Etgar Keret. Comienzas a leerlo y parece cualquier cosa genérica a la Salman Rushdie, luego, de pronto empiezan a saltar elementos, enormes "WTF?", y fragmentos poéticos que logran una mezcla verdaderamente retorcida, donde lo irreverente e irreal se mezclan con estos mundos l [...]


    17. I'm pretty surprised how true the movie was to the book. Nonetheless, it was still a great little read. The names were different and a few elements were changed, but the same dark humour that I love so much about Wristcutters: A Love Story was prevalent in this book, the movie's inspiration.I'll have to admit that the ending took me by surprise, though. It's not entirely unpleasant, but it's definitely bitter-sweet. This would have been a great novel, but it works lovely as a novella as well. Th [...]


    18. Este libro ha sido la sorpresa del año. El autor ya traía buenas referencias de muy distintas fuentes, así que me esperaba lo mejor: pero que un libro traducido del hebreo y leído en neerlandés pueda resultar tan divertido, humano, conmovedor, cercano, actual (me faltan adjetivos para seguir) tantos años después de su fecha de publicación y después de tantos libros como llevo leídos, es algo que no esperaba encontrar tan fácilmente ya a mis años. Altamente recomendable para todos los [...]


    19. Al final me hizo muy feliz ver las formas tan trágicas que termina todas las historias. Keret al final creo que es un creyente de los espacios inalcanzables y las soledades incompartibles pero colectivas. No sé exactamente cómo explicarlo. En especial adoro que cada capítulo es en sí un cuento. Que todos se unen como una sucesión de cosas, que provoca que un recuerdo sea vivida una y otra y otra y otra vez. Como si fuera inevitable vivir ciertas cosasRO entre toda esta maravilla, útero no [...]


    20. Racconti, qualcuno breve, qualcun altro molto breve. Tutti abbozzi di un mondo parallelo appena fuori dalla porta di casa. E del cuore.


    21. At first I wasn't sure about this kind of reading but I have to say that I really liked it. It's differrent and dark but also it's very funny , interesting and cute.


    22. This was crazy!First I thought it was crazily bad - then I changed my mind a bit. I think it is one of the weirdest book I've ever read and I want/should do that more. Not that I necessarily will go looking for weirder ones, but just books that make me more aware of the space(s) outside the box. Etgar Keret had already sparked my interest when I came to see a documentary about him. This one: Het Uur van de Wolf: Etgar Keret - een waargebeurd verhaal. It's very well made and shows a world full of [...]


    23. This is a rather strange and highly original collection of short stories by this Israelian author who is apparently super-popular, but I haven't heard of him until now. I quite liked the stories for they are rather bizzare, sometimes funny, sometimes touching, sometimes cruel, but I can't really say much about his style because it is so unique that I'd probably do best if I just say that you should check it out yourself. The best story in this collection is the longest one, and it is by far the [...]


    24. Una serie de relatos que te exigen como lector, salir de tu zona de confort y esforzarte para entender situaciones de la realidad con una distorsión muy especial, el permitirte mirar estas situaciones con los ojos del escritor es abrir una posibilidad a un absurdo diferente.Es compleja su lectura puesto que es un estilo muy especial, pero siempre cómodo de leer y con una emoción muy mesurada, que te lleva a la satisfacción.


    25. A novella from Etgar Keret. Took me about 2hrs to read. Most of Keret’s stories are short - which often leave me wanting more so it was nice to read a longer story from him. This story takes place in the afterlife - populated only by people who have killed themselves. Has a lot of interesting characters and was a fun, albeit dark, read.


    26. Uzi the killingjoy said, "Believe me, Mordy, nobody dies from a first time, no matter of what, unless they seriously want to."My second Keret's reading. Would like to read more of his joyous thought.


    27. Fun read but nothing I'd be excited to share about. There's some interesting here and there, and the characters are also interesting. My favorite had to be Uzi.


    28. No, this is not as good as his short stories and memoir. The opening chapters are quite promising, but it does not hold to the end. Mordy's adventure is more like a farce, and a boring one.



    29. Psuedo-religious claptrap, but with a bittersweet ending. Low life Losers in Limbo might have been a better title
